Linuxchick.se five years online
Today it’s five years since I first announced this domain from my DNS-server. So what happened during these five years? Well, I would say pretty much nothing and a lot more. Linuxchick.se was bought a few months after it became possible for a person to buy a .se domain name. First it was supposed to be my personal web page, but as I was thinking about it I wanted to do something for other women out there using Linux so I began to code on a community.
As I was half way into my work with the site I begun to look around for women that would want to join my project. What I found out from my search was that there already existed a couple of communities for women interested in computers in general and Linux exclusively. I dropped the idea of creating my own community that would bring all the linuxchicks together and let the domain name continue it’s quiet life as my e-mail address.
Since then linuxchick.se hasn’t been much more than my personal e-mail address until February this year when I decided that I needed something that everyone around me already had, a blog. After five years the linuxchick.se domain is finally used for something; my blog, my personal web page and not to forget, it’s still used for my personal e-mail address.
